What if UFC had heightclasses instead of weightclasses?

Anonymous No. 197416

I've always said this should be the cade, every 4 inches is a new class and you can keep the same division spread

All combat sports should be open competition with no classes of any kind.

But what about manlets?

Well not for nothing but why do they think they have a right to be professionals in a sport if they're not athletically gifted enough
Other sports don't have a professional manlet division

If you want to play basketball or football or some shit, be a big person or get so good that you can be 5'6" and still keep up
Sports fans want to see the best of the best, not the jr.s

If manlets can become top division mainstays in sumo, they can manage in any other sport. Go and tell Midorifuji he shouldn't be allowed to fight the big boys.

Height and reach are a huge factor when it comes to striking, being shorter allows for better grappling.

But yeah, Suga Sean is basically on PED's being that fucking tall in his weight class. Nobody can get close.

I get your point but I wouldn't want to miss out on Demetrious or Cejudo

Reach matters more.
The question is how much does weight matter?
I would make a chart, but idk how to.

Are O'malley's shoulders uneven or is it just me? Has he always been like that?

I guess you could look at the old ufcs, like the first 10, when everything was absolute, and see what the weight advantage to win ratio was like. But the data is so old its hard to compare to modern day.

Oh well, I guess someone will have to run an open-weight MMA tournament for a few years and see what happens.

So thankful i have wide shoulders

Anonymous No. 198199

Dc is only shorter because he has no neck which is an advantage in all combat sports. Look at his waste line and shoulder height he is 6’2 proportions with no neck and a short round head. Put omalleys neck and head and he’s 6-2

No. I could use modern heavyweight fights.
Brock lesnar had a 45 lb advantage on randy.
igor vovchanchyn vs paul varelans showed even a 123 lb weight advantage isn't an absolute win.

That is the beauty of combat sports though. Because in team sports weight classes are impractical we have a place to put athletic midgets.

They can compete. Manlets have gotten way too cocky lately. They're like women who thinks they can actually fight a grown man. All thanks to this UFC bullshit.
